I don't suppose there's anyone at Apple whom we could write to about this
problem?  Not that I really think we're going to get Apple to change
their mind...but they might be interested to know that, by having a free
distribution BSD on my Mac, I will be able to get much more use out of
my IIci, and be much happier about the idea of buying an Apple machine
in the future.  Moreover, if I were buying a new machine now, my needs
for UNIX might supercede the desire to have the nice Mac interface...
Maybe Apple can be swayed?

By the way, to the developers...What's the projection for getting MacBSD
working with internal video running on the IIci/IIsi (and any other
machines which don't have dedicated VRAM)?  Just curious...Keep up the
good work!
